    Default How do I recognize that?

    Hi, I'm noob in here.
    Nice to meet you all.

    By the way, I just have a question how I recognize
    the meaning of English below.
    Especially how meaning of "bop" in this situation.

    "Now the boys after twenty five years have never bopped better. I’ve got a funny feeling they’re going to go on for twenty five years more."

    This comment is by a man for one Rock band is going to greet 25th anniversary.

    I recognized the meaning as,

    "Now the boys after 25 years have got better settled down. I think they're still going to keep their motivation up in future."

    Is my confirmation right?
    I am glad if someone helps me.

    Thanks in advance.

    bop = dance Therefore, I'd interpret this as meaning that their performances are better and more energetic than ever and they look set to continue for a long time, not settle down and become old.
